Abstract urface orientation change of nematic liquid crystals under the action of electric field and linearly polarized UV irradiation at different directions of the polarization plane is investigated. Surface orientation change was controlled by an observation of surface director position at photoaligned substrate. It was found that an increase of the angle between polarization plane direction and initial orientation of liquid crystal molecules resulted in slowing down of surface director dynamics.
